Customers Quilts

Here are some customer quilts that I quilted this month. I started hanging the quilts outside off of the porch to take the pictures. It is much easier hanging them off the porch because I do not have to get the ladder out to hang them like I did inside.  I am not sure if I like the outside pictures better. The quilting actually shows up better when the picture is taken inside. The quilting shows up better when the light washes over the quilt instead of directly on it. Since I am selling my quilting it is important that the quilting show in the pictures.  But on another note the quilt itself does look better in the outside pictures. I guess ideally I should take both inside and outside pictures. Now that is a lot of work.

The pattern for this quilt is ready.

 I love the fabrics in this quilt.
We have all of these fabrics in stock.

It looks very soft and peaceful.

After I am done with this quilt at the shop it is going home on my guest room bed.

Baby Elephant Walk

 Last week seven of the Seven Sisters Quilt Guild decided to make this Elephant quilt. I love how they are looking and could not wait to share them. So here are three of them so far. 

Earleen is the first one to finish. 
She used yellow and pink Batiks and it is absolutely beautiful!
She quilted it on her midarm.

Mine is almost done. It just needs to be bound.
I used 21 different pinks all from the shop.
I quilted mine on the longarm before applying the pinks.

Lou is well on her way. She is using all blues from the shop.
Lou is sewing on her blues first and will have it quilted afterward.

Chris, Cheryl, Barbara, and Margaret are also making one.
The pattern for this quilt is in the book "Scrap Happy Quilting."
